It’s something I have wanted to see for years. And Wednesday NASCAR announced it. Starting this season the old days of boring single car qualifying sessions will be a thing of the past; NASCAR laid out its new format for qualifying and will use a knockout style format similar to that used in Formula 1.

It’s a great decision that will leave fans breathless on qualifying days instead of wondering how they will stay awake.  It also gives tracks another outlet to sell tickets as qualifying will definitely be something to watch each week.

For tracks one and a quarter mile or longer,all cars will go out for 25 minutes MORE>>>
